A true revelation in the 2017 edition of the Cannes Festival, this film will immerse viewers in the first AIDS awareness campaigns throughout the 1980s.

Early 1990s. With AIDS having already claimed countless lives for nearly ten years, Act Up-Paris activists multiply their actions to fight against total indifference. Nathan, a newcomer to the organization, has his world shaken up by Sean, a radical campaigner, who throws his last bits of strength into his commitment to the cause.
